Financial Information

The Commissioner publishes detailed financial information on a regular basis to help detail how public resources are used. This page holds information about finances, expenditure, contracts and property and other financial data that we are required to publish by statute.

The nature of these documents means that not all are published in a fully accessible format at present. If you are unable to access the information you require or need further assistance to be able to view the information, please contact us and we will endeavour to provide it to you in an accessible way.

Please note the information about the grants awarded by the PCC and commissioned services can be found in the Your PCC section under Commissioners’ Grants.

Annual Statement of Accounts

Publication of accounts


The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2023 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, due to delays in the receipt of assurances from the auditor of Warwickshire Pension Fund.

Therefore, this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2022/23 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 30th September 2023, as per paragraph (1). The latest versions of the Accounts, as amended following the substantial completion of the Audit, and signed by the CFOs and those charged with governance, are as follows:
